There are many distinctions that make an epoxy floor much more suitable for everyday use than a regular concrete floor. For example, a concrete floor is very porous and allows all kinds of pollutants, debris, chemicals, and water to seep through it and ruin the concretes foundation. Concrete is also easily stained and cracked, which means, it is in a constant state of needing to be repaired. Concrete on its own cannot protect itself against mold growth and bacteria because it is not water-resistant, therefore, creates a perfect breeding ground for both.
An epoxy floor has no such issues because of the mixture that solidifies on top of your concrete, made of resins and hardeners. Once the epoxy flooring system has been installed your concretes pores are sealed off from potentially harmful chemicals, oils, and fluids. The sealant isolates spills and debris to make them easy and accessible to be cleaned up. Epoxy floors are so resistant to all types of damage that their lifespans are well over 15 years.
